Yeah, that is a pretty dumb build. Who puts an 800-watt psu with SLI'd 8500GTs? Actually... who even puts two 8500GT's in SLI?

hey for the right price... i wouldnt care if its old.. i mean the opteron 180 is an impressive cpu... and comparable to plenty of am2 cpu's

only big upgrade w/ am2 would be memory bandwidth.. and i'm sure he's not worrying about that anyway!

yeah, I already had gotten the impression that somebody else had built that for him, and yeah, s939, if that was built less than a few months ago brand new, for ~$1000 that's really frucking pathetic, whoever built it should be shot in the knees and castrated with a fishing knife.
